Logistically,how would the internet work without neutrality?

The telcos collect from customers for providing them internet service. What is wrong with this model? If the telco thinks that the consumer is using too much bandwidth then charge them more for it. You already have an accounts recievable department recieving money from the consumer anyway!!

This logic of charging the content provider is totally ridiculous and even more so, it's totally impracticle. Say AT&T decided to bill Broadbandreports a nickel every time an AT&T customer went to the bbr website. How is that going to be possible? Now the consumer has to have a credit card number to get charged a nickel for every site they go to....unless its on the AT&T network. This is nothing but another push for a monopoly.
